    With the collapse of the former Siyad Barre regime in 1991, Somalia entered a two-decade-long civil war while simultaneously suffering from recurrent seasonal flooding and droughts. Conflict, insecurity and natural hazards have resulted in the death and forced displacement of thousands of innocent people.

    The years of conflict have negatively impacted social cohesion in Somalia and the local administration is worried that the current tensions between different clans could lead to intercommunal conflict.

    The first step to address this situation is to create a platform for discussion which will achieve a greater bond among the community members. Since 2011, the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) has made significant advances in liberating regions and towns with support from AMISOM forces, advancing towards peace, stability and sustainable development.

    Peacebuilding activities engaging traditional and religious community leaders, women’s groups and youth in discussions with the administration are necessary inorder to begin the process of rebuilding trust in the government.
